It is very seriously complicated for the title.
Held in check by Rennes (1-1) this Sunday evening, at the end of the 36th day of Ligue 1, PSG finds itself relegated to three points from the Lille leader two days from the end of the championship.
It would now take a little miracle.
Mauricio Pochettino knows it, but the Parisian coach wants to believe it.
Did PSG lose the title tonight?
In football, a lot can happen.
We are all disappointed today but he also gives credit to Rennes, which had a very good match.
We have to win our next meetings to hope for something at the finish.
Did you make the right match in the attitude?
I think that today, beyond the attitude or the quality that we have been able to have, we can simply say that we were not better than Rennes.
We didn't deserve the three points, that's all.
Should we be worried about the state of mind of your players and their failing minds on this meeting?
It's a season with a lot of ups and downs.
We arrived four months ago, with the ambition to help the players and the club.
A lot has happened.
Everything we see and all the information we collect should enable us to move forward for the future.

Rennes is a great team.
She played on a really big beat.
You can't think of an absence or anything tonight.
Did you speak with Presnel Kimpembe who exploded in the hall after the game, following his expulsion?
How to re-motivate the troops?
Regarding "Kimp", on the action of his expulsion, we see frustration with the result at that time.
Things have been said from the opposing bench.
For the rest, we are professionals, we know our responsibilities, we know the importance of the next matches.
There is always disappointment after such a match when you play for PSG.
Did the elimination in the Champions League have an influence?
If this is something that has influenced the players, we have to think about it because in a club like PSG we have to leave it in the past and think about the future.
Are you already thinking of any changes for next season?
The club and all the technical staff are thinking about what can make the team better in the future. Decisions will be made at the end of the season, in due course. It will be the culmination of discussions between the staff and the sports management.
